A Fanboy Father's Father's Day Present (To Himself)
Einstein's theorems? A man on the moon? What is Mankind's greatest achievement? Chop Sabre's I say! That is right, I love Star Wars and I don't care if it has become a sort of nerd-chice cliche. I still get excited by Old Man Lucas' unending torrent of merch. So I shelled out the 15 or so smackers the minute I learned of the chopsabre's existence (I believe I first saw them on ThinkGeek). The thought of eating up some Chinese with the chop sabres all of the while making lightsabre noise left me plum tickled.
Aside from the red and green (sith and jedi) chop sabres, you get 2 cunning little chop sabre rests.
BB-ZSHOOOO! VVVVVVVVVVVV...VVVVVVVVVVVV...VVVMMMM!!! KSCHHHHHHHHHH!!! KSCHHHHHHHHHH!!! (this is my text based representation of a heated lightsabre duel). Should you see a gent making these noises whilst eating at Ala Shanghai there is an exceedingly high probability that it is me.
Anyhow, after unwrapping my treasure I looked down at my t-shirt...
That's right, a grown man was sitting in his kitchen (giggling like a child) and unwrapping a pair of chop sabres while wearing a Boba Fett t-shirt (not planned, purely coincidental). Mrs. Dave is a very lucky woman...
